The UK government’s next travel update is currently expected to be announced on Thursday, September 16.

The next review is expected to include a number of redlist changes as well as potential greenlist candidates – we’ve put together a more comprehensive guide here.

Italy could be a candidate for the green list, as the country has reported low infection rates and reportedly administered doses of the vaccine to the majority of its population. Meanwhile, countries like France, Spain, Portugal and the Netherlands have also all seen a drop in the number of coronavirus cases.

Where Brits Can Go on Vacation

As for the Red List, there has been speculation that Jamaica could be added after the Foreign Office recently changed its guidelines to advise against non-essential travel to the island “on the basis of the current COVID-19 risk assessment “.

There has also been speculation that the Green and Amber Lists could be removed entirely by October 1, although at the time of writing this has not been confirmed.

The Covid situation and the rules for traveling to a destination can change quickly, so if you are planning a trip you should always check the latest Foreign Office travel advice for the latest updates and entry requirements that you must know.
